Rashtriya Lok Dal chief Ajit Singh on Monday asked the Centre to stop import of sugar and resume exporting the commodity to ensure that cane farmers get proper
price of their produce.
India imported 25.18 lakh tonnes
of sugar during the 2008-09 season to augment domestic supply,
the government informed Parliament today.
The government has decided to allow millers to import duty-free raw sugar till December 2010 for sale in the domestic market, as drought has put pressure on output raising fears of surge in prices of the sweetener to
over Rs 40 a kg.
